Hi! this is Darlisa Black, owner of “Starlisa Black Photography”
Please consider sharing my blog and other photo sharing links with your friends, and help me share the concept of finding Serenity and personal healing in Nature. Do use standard sharing tools so that a link will point back to one of my websites. Thank you for coming to share my world!
Early this summer i was able to make a one day journey along the southern route through Mount Rainer National Park. The mountain hid her face most of the day, finally peeking through the clouds as I was on the last leg of the journey. Throughout the day, in mist and fog, I was entranced by the little roadside vignettes in green forest dress, and stopped many times to breathe in the rich air and absorb the beauty. Thank you for sharing it with me!
These are taken at Christine Falls in the park
Ruby Falls near the road to Paradise was a treasure on that day
The next four are different shots of Narada Falls, which was nearly too large to catch with my 28 mm maximum size option. The spray was so very intense it was a struggle to get any shots at all of this falls, but it was a joy to stand there and feel the power of this mountain expressed through the tremendous glacial run off and snowmelt.

This lovely little jewel was along the trail down to Narada Falls
I almost missed this one alongside the road in to the park, small and elegant.
A passing motorist offered to catch my picture with my phone in this rare moment of the day when the Mountain showed her face.
Ancient Cedars and other old growth trees abound in the park, and I love to meditate on the changing world this tree witnessed in its lifetime.
Thanks to the heavy moisture and rainfall of the western slopes of the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington and Oregon, the lush rich undergrowth of ferns and wildflowers and moss draped maples is legendary.
another roadside stop featured this lovely seasonal stream that created a waterfall over the roots of the ancient tree.

Lovely shots of Narada Falls! Did you drag along a tripod down that steep trail for the long exposure shots?
Hi Peggy! oh yes I did and used it for a walking stick over the areas that still had snow patches!
I just realized I have a couple other favorite images from that area I forgot to add to this post, will remedy that…
one is a tiny waterfall on the stream along that Narada trail
